We are less than a week away from the world debut of ‘Fifty Shades of Grey,’ the most highly-anticipated film adaptation of 2015 so far, and the marketing for the film is getting hotter and hotter. The latest promotion for the movie again stars Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson, as the two pose for a new shoot that will be featured in the March issue of W Magazine.
Among the most talked-about shots from the upcoming spread includes the image above, taken by none-other than the director of ‘Fifty Shades of Grey,’ Sam Taylor-Johnson. In the upcoming article Taylor-Johnson explains that the book, “is about control,” and states that the film follows that lead. Taylor-Johnson goes on to say, “in a sense the whole process of making the movie also became about control. … I had to be faithful to the book. There were, if you like, manacles. But there was also room for trespassing.” The image above, with Dakota Johnson naked on the floor next to a seated and clothed Jamie Dornan, expresses that sentiment.
The film will premiere in just a few days with a stunning cast behind it. Joining Dornan and Johnson in the cast are Luke Grimes as Elliot, Christian’s brother; Victor Rasuk as José, Anastasia’s close friend; Eloise Mumford as Kate, Anastasia’s best friend and roommate; Marcia Gay Harden as Dr. Grace Trevelyan Grey, Christian’s mother; Rita Ora as Mia, Christian’s sister; Max Martini as Taylor, Christian’s bodyguard; Callum Keith Rennie as Ray, Anastasia’s stepfather; Jennifer Ehle as Carla, Anastasia’s mother; and Dylan Neal as Bob, Carla’s husband.
FIFTY SHADES OF GREY is directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson and produced by Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti alongside E L James, the creator of the series. The screenplay for the film is by Kelly Marcel. Presale tickets are available in some locations for Valentine’s Day showings, if you’re quick enough to pick them up.
